The new chat widget in the bottom right is bringing in a flood of great questions, leading to many small improvements!
Today someone asked the above question, about how this differs from assigning chores manually, on paper.
When you use pen and paper the schedule is the same each week and some chores that should be done infrequently can get left out or done too often.
Also to keep the number of chores to a number than can be manually assigned they need to be quite large chores (e.g. “Clean kitchen”), whereas if the computer does it they can be many small chores, possibly done by different people at different times, e.g. “Clean benchtop, clean oven, mop kitchen floor”.
Another thing is that when you sit down and write the schedule manually, you are the one responsible for being fair. If the computer does it, you are not the person at fault for any perceived unfairness.
